CBS = GREED OR WHAT THE PUBLIC WANTS?

I was never going to write about C****** S****.  I don't even talk about him, except briefly with my husband in the privacy of our home to bemoan the ongoing media coverage.  My husband made a goddesses joke.  Once.  He got my wifely stony response and that was the end of that.

So why do I mention "he who has been over covered" here?  Now?  Do you know that CBS is actually trying to hire him back?  I am writing because I think it is time for a complete boycott of CBS if such a craven, money mad thing is actually  true.

I am sorry if you watch Survivor or The Good Wife or something else on CBS.  Perhaps it is easy for me to suggest such a thing because I no longer watch anything on CBS. (The Amazing Race finally got too repetitive for me.)  But really.  How low can a company go?  How low do they think viewers in this country will go?  Maybe that is really the worst part...

The answer to your question---probably both, unfortunately.

I've never watched his show for a very simple reason - he's a man who thinks it's acceptable to hurt women. I don't give a flip about whether he uses drugs or drinks tiger blood or whatever. But he's been arrested for and convicted of domestic violence. And he shows no remorse or sign of learning from his ways. And for that, I will never contribute one damn penny to him or anyone who does business with him.

I am so sick of him, but I don't watch CBS anyway.

For a while, I've been wondering if this whole thing is just a publicity stunt that he cooked up with CBS. Now I'm convinced of it. I don't watch any TV, so CBS won't get my time.

You make a good point about The Good Wife--which is an amazing show that I never even realized was on CBS.

Putting everything else aside, that show of his is written for idiots to begin with.

Really sad that his ehaviour is not only tolerated but endorsed. People think this whole thing is o.k.and enjoy watching his antics?
